It seems that every time I go somewhere and someone finds out I'm a Salem Oregon real estate agent they always ask me about how the downtown condos are doing. "Have any of them sold?" is often the question I get. Both The Meridian and The Church Street Condos have sold units, but we all know this market is tough. I just read in The Oregonian that First Citizens Bank of North Carolina who holds the note for The Meridian project just filed to foreclose on the project. You can read the filing papers if you are so inclined, but it's (3 comments)
Top 10 Things I Wish Someone Would Have Told Me When I Bought My First House - 03/20/10 03:34 PM
Janet is one of my favorite bloggers on ActiveRain. I think her top 10 list is a great list for first time home buyers. Via Janet Guilbault California Mortgage Banker/Broker: 1. You are 25 years old. In 15 years, you will be 40 years old. Wouldn't you like to have this house paid off and be only 40 years old? 2. The price of buying a FIXER is you have to LIVE in a fixer, and be chained to it on weekends (when you should be out having fun) You are only young once. 3. You can change the ugly carpet, but you can't (3 comments)
Keizer Oregon Home Trends for February 2010 - 03/19/10 12:34 PM
Keizer Oregon real estate trends I chatted about the Salem Oregon real estate market a couple of posts ago, but let's take a look at where the Keizer market is for February. Technically homes sales were up in Keizer 42% in February 2010 over 2009, BUT this is just an increase from 7 last year to 10 this year. It sounds better than it really is. I really don't want to put a damper on things, but I need to put the stats into context here. This is still about half of what it should be.

Salem Oregon Home Trends for February 2010 - 03/12/10 11:23 PM
"Get $8,000 tax credit" scream the real estate sign riders...just in case you weren't aware that it was out there. The count down has been so apparent this past month as the Salem Oregon real estate market started early. Typically I tell clients that the market starts to heat up in April, but agents were running amok this month as things got busy much earlier than usual. Sellers are out trying to get their home sold for the tax credit and buyers are out trying to get the tax credits. So...where does all this frantic activity leave the Salem real (3 comments)
This post has nothing to do with real estate...well only indirectly. A local colleague (ie a real estate agent with another company), Charles Price has a really wonderful food blog called Taste of Oregon.
In fact it is so good it was selected as one of the blogs in Saveur for best regional food blog. The public gets to vote so you all head over there and vote for his incredible food blog. I'm hoping if I drive enough votes to his blog that he'll make me dinner. You all thought I was posting this (4 comments)
